Luke 3: In the second year of Donald Trump as President, Mike Parson governor of Missouri, Lyda Krewson mayor of St. Louis and Steve Stenger was commissioner of St. louis County, during the Synod presidency of Matthew Harrison and Lee Hagen as district president, the word of God came from the mouth of preachers to the wilderness of our lives. The voice was as one crying in the wilderness, “Prepare the way of the Lord, make the traffic lanes straight for Him, fill every ravine and level every mountain and hill; straighten the ess curves and smooth out the potholes. Build it so all people can see from horizon to horizon and perceive that God has saved them.”
O Lord, as You stir up your power and come, so stir up our hearts to prepare the royal highway for your Son, that by his coming we may be enabled to serve you in single mindedness. We ask this through the One you sent even Jesus Christ, who is our Lord, and lives and rules with You and the Holy Spirit, one united God, both in the present and for eternity.
